8 pin din CD aux pinout? Chrysler Jeep TJ 98

This is my first question here, I know this has been asked for before, and apparently given, but I just cannot find a picture or a complete description of the Radio cassette CD pin out?
I believe some of these 90's era radio units can be adapted to have an auxiliary output?
My unit has the 8 pin din connector on the back, which I am told there are two types, one that is quite dumb and another that actively communicates with the CD unit, if someone could show me the pinout of the earlier simpler connector, I will have a go at making a cable to a Bluetooth adaptor most likely.
I know it is easier to just put a new radio in its place, but I would like to keep this Jeep Tj as original as possible.
So if someone have got the pinout picture I would be very grateful.
Ps I drive a 98 Jeep TJ

Did this ever get shown? I'm looking for the 8pin DIN pinout also for a 95 P4704345F Chrysler radio with the cd input.
The RBL is made by Alpine for the European market.
The DIN, I believe is a universal pinout. I found this on the Alpine website:
Perfect! Thanks
So I got the bluetooth adapter. I checked the pinouts..L and R Audio and Audio Ground seem correct. Bat and Ground seem correct. The Mbus, Bus Gnd, and ACC are unused. When I connected it the bluetooth connected to my phone, but the radio states "No CD". Am I missing something for things to work?

How would I trick it. I'm sure others have done this in the past... Cable Font Gadget Wire Fashion accessory

You said that the MBUS and BUS GND are unused by the adapter you have. If your radio is like mine then it requires the proper message on the mbus to enable the port. When enabled you get an additional option on the radio/CD selection.
Short of getting the right adapter ImperialCrown's suggestion is probably the best option.
You're exactly right. Unfortunately the $12 adapter is not going to work out. Bought another with the MBus signal. I'll be trying that one today.
